Default ta04

I hope this is a competitive chassis for TCS. It would be a nice change from the TA04.

Doesn't sound likely if it's based on the evo3!! That would mean carbon double deck chassis...04 is tub chassis...at least for GT2 class.

With the 12 gear options it should be tub based like the 01 was, you change the ratio with the different spur gears. With the lighter diffs etc it will help if they redid the susp geometry then it should be competitive. I think in the listing I saw a SSG upper deck which also points to a tub based car
